    Need Help Streaming Hour Long Videos About 40 Total

    I have access to my own server pretty much... I share a server with another guy so its just maybe 10 people total on it. I have plenty of bandwidth to use. I need to know how to go about this. I have all the DVD's on my computer in ISO format so they will encode down to whatever format I need to use.

    What is the best format to put up. How do I have to stream it? I have tried to read the intro about streaming, but if someone can just tell me what would be best for me.

    I want users to be able to move the slider bar and start and stop the stream where they want. Is flash the best way for me to stream? I want all users to be able to watch... anyone with a recent web browser.

    Most of the video's are sermons that are half and hour or an hour long. I will be hosting for another site and they will be liking to my site potentially.

    Where do I start?

    dallaswoody@gmail.com if anyone would email me

    I am pretty good with comptuers... build my own.. and design my own websites, I don't think this should be that hard for me, with some good help

    thanks

    Do you want viewers to be able to choose what they view or do you want to program a broadcast channel (or multiple) like a tv station with a schedule?

    I have specific files to be watched

    I have about 40 files that I would like viewers to be able to watch at their own convience.

    I found http://www.jeroenwijering.com
    I just have to figure out how to encode these files small enough...
    I have half hour and hour long files... what is the smallest file size I should get down to for an hour video streaming? The quality doesn't have to be that great. I got 40 minutes into 76 megs... is this good or bad? I guess that would be about a 100 megs at an hour length...

    Anyone made files smaller? The quality looks good enough to me at that size.

    If the quality is what you want and the file size is what you want, great!
    If not, yes, you can likely make it smaller.

    Another thing, i wouldn't consider using Media Player. Flash is however quite expensive, so MP might be your best choice. Users are generally annoyed by RM and such formats.

    You might be able to find a cheap converter, along with a "player" with the mentioned GUI controls. I'm sure there are some free-to-use ones you can use on your website.

    Streaming by weight

    Hey Eric... you there?

    I have been trying to upload vids to server and although they present in the unix script, they seem to only play for 15 to say 45 seconds, and stall..terminally. Are there current standards for how large a Flash file is, in order to fit in the buffer. Is there a standard for buffer capacity, if not...how to determine buffer on the flah player?

    What "unix script"?

    Standards? Flash? nope.

    Nope.
    No clue, the only player control I've used was already written and it buffered automagically...
